About Us

For over 10 years, the Minority Business Executive Program has focused on increasing the competitiveness of diverse-owned businesses. The program is supported by the University of Washington Foster School of Business Executive Education and the Consulting and Business Development Center, in conjunction with the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC), corporations, and government partners.

MBEP has accelerated the growth of numerous diverse suppliers to the nation’s leading corporations. Business revenue growth for program alumni averages more than 10%, and our corporate partners continue to see improved performance from the companies they sponsor to attend.

A major component in the success of MBEP is the generous financial support from our corporate partners.

Special thanks to our partner organizations for providing scholarships to MBEP participants.
